The video card may have went out.The screen itself rarely goes out.its either videocard,video inverter or a loose video cable.The D8P has a tendency to overheat when the cooling fan is either not working or is blocked or dirty.Try unplugging the video cable with it powered off,then plug it back in.Maybe you will get lucky and it will work.If not i would say the videocard is damaged.

By power supply, do you mean a new battery or a new AC adapter? When the noise comes, are the status lights on on the laptop, battery and ac adapter?
Plus: check the lcd settings---is it turned all the way down? This could be the easy solution.

    I think what you are trying to tell me is that the screen is blank, and not showing a thing because you say the AC Adapter works. In which case, you will have to get the screen repaired. Anything else I can help you with?

NY Samsung laptop turns on, but only a blue screen appears. The green light on front of laptop isn't coming on.

This sounds like the Blue Screen of Death. Most likely a hardware problem. Does the blue screen display words and numbers? If so try to write down numbers and do a Google search. This should give you a good starting point. Or send me a snap shot of screen and I\'ll see what I can come up with. Hope this helps.

I cant turn on my HP520 notebook pc. when i press the power button, it blinks once, and the charging light blinks for 9times(orange light, the 8th times was green light) i tried to remove the battery and...

Alright, not sure if this will help, by my understanding is that you are saying that when you power the computer using the power supply adapter, nothing comes on? Then when you have your battery installed on, then there are lights blinking from your battery charger LED amount of times. In this case there are no promblem with your laptop and it is your power supply adapter that is damaged and will need to be replaced. It is not charging the battery. The battery is still good, but does not have enought charge to power up your system. You can find a charger on ebay for a good reasonable price compare to getting it from Hp. I hope this can help you.

Sager d47v no video

It could be a lid switch. Get it on long enough to go into the power settings, turn the option of "lid closed" to "do nothing". If this does not help there are only 2 other things affecting it. 1. cable, internal to the machine that may be bad or 2. The video card on the MB itself. If its the latter, you will need to replace the MB or probably be cheaper to buy a new laptop.
